According to Howard Thompson, the Sisters contact at Elektra Records, it's written on the back of a Gramercy Park Hotel Roomservice Breakfast menu (in NY). And genuine. Quite interesting.

It seems Pedro Moncada has passed away, sadly.

Here is a Picture of him. Although older, it does look like the guitarist in TC and those TV shows.

Radio interview with AE from 88

A Swedish radio show, Bank, interviewed Andrew Eldritch back in 1988. The week after they had Wayne on the show. They talk about the split and stuff. I stumbled upon it by chance, but they're available for downloading here http://www.radiogodis.se/ovrigt_80.htm (you'll have to scroll way down, it's ...

Hi Tidal! If you look at the official site you can find the lyrics for Romeo Down there. You can see that they differ slightly from your version. Nice effort though.

And he holds the syllable for too long for it too be "missile", you don't say "misaaaail", but "missail."
But he's singit it, not saying it.

Oh a quiz. Neat.

TC= The Cure
DM= Depeche Mode
BJ = Bon Jovi ??
DD = Duran Duran

The rest escape me though.
I will go with:
MC = Mötley Crüe
DL = Def Leppard?

I once had two songs from Montreaux on tape. Was it Dominion as well? I think it was, and it is all playback. Andrews mic is on however, as has been pointed out, so at one point you can hear him utter the word 'power'. There is also some footage from backstage with James, Andrew and Patricia waiting...

I have to agree with Arrrgh!

Good though the tours may be, at this point I would like to see the meticulous perfectionism of Andrew in a studio, not another power chord played over another in a wall of dry ice.
